All script apps such as forums or e-shops keep their data in a database - a group of cells and tables which contains the website information including items, prices, comments, and many others. When you open a specific page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the needed information, then displays it. The mid-level software that connects the script and the database is referred to as a database management system and among the most popular ones is MySQL. The latter is commonly used simply because it works on various platforms (Linux, UNIX, Windows) and with numerous scripting languages (Java, Perl, Python, PHP), not mentioning its amazing functionality even with huge databases. A lot of well-known platforms such as WordPress or Joomla use MySQL databases to keep their content.

MySQL 5 Databases in Cloud Website Hosting

The in-house built Hepsia Control Panel that comes with our cloud website hosting will permit you to control all your MySQL databases without difficulty. It takes just a couple of mouse clicks to create a completely new database and with just one more click you may back it up if you would like to have a copy before you update your Internet site, for instance. You will be able to change the password, delete a database or allow remote access to it just as easily. For the latter option you could opt for the IP addresses that'll be able to connect to the database remotely so as to make sure that unauthorized people shall not be able to access your info. If you wish to view the database content or change any cell or table from the CP, you may use phpMyAdmin, a powerful web-based interface. Using any one of our script-driven applications will also be easy as our script installer will set up a database for the script that you have picked automatically.
